For those of you waiting on the replacement for GMS, Alex posted an
update to his blog yesterday.

Wonder what everyone thinks about the one and only supported
configuration...

    Why WTF?

    Running into this alot of places. The new Retain is x86_64 only as
    well.
    Any server with the oomph to run that should be 64 bit though.
  • So lets re-cap.

    1) Superlab apparently doesn't reflect real world conditions.

    2) Its a resource hog.

    3) Not supported on the same OS as OES. NICE!

    4) Who uses VMWare anyway?

    That doesn't bug me too much as most servers have been 64-bit for a
    while. What bugs me even more is that only SLES 11 is supported.
    Novell's support lifecycle page says SLES 10 has support until 2016.
    Guess there should be an asterik next to that.

  • It bugs me from a virtualization and third party software standpoint.
    Backup agents, monitoring need to support 64bit. There are some minor
    considerations both in resources and performance for virtualizing a
    64-bit guest.

    Its obviously not end of the world, but for shops that aren't scaling to
    1000 devices, it is extra overhead and work for zero benefit.
